Q'ero Maestro, Don Mariano Quispe will return 
to North America soon!

 November, 2016 in Georgia and North Carolina

Native Voices South is delighted to invite you to participate in ancestral teachings and ceremony offered by beloved Andean paqo, Don Mariano, when he returns to the USA this fall. 

Don Mariano will travel here from Peru accompanied by Odon Medina, our longtime friend who will translate for him as he shares teachings the first two weekends in November, 2016 

The two weekends with Don Mariano offer you the opportunity to work with powerful spiritual and earthly energies as they are understood in the Andean tradition. The teachings will focus on connection with natural forces, using practices developed since Inca and pre-Inca times by the paqos (healers, ceremonialists, and wisdom keepers) of the Q'ero communities in the mountains of Peru. The workshops will be deeply experiential, as Don Mariano works both with the group as a community and individually with each person to anchor those energies within the physical and energetic body.

   * Luminous Heart: Anchoring the Ñusta Energies  
In the November 4-6, 2016 workshop, we will continue to awaken and deepen our connections with the Ñustas, powerful female forces in and of the Earth, essential to the process of creating and maintaining balance for both men and women. Don Mariano will build upon the Ñusta teachings he has shared here during previous visits to North America. At the same time, he will open and anchor those connections for those who are newcomers to the tradition.

   * River of Stars: Connecting with the Cosmic Forces of the Wilkamayu
The November 11-13, 2016 workshop will focus on the energies of the Wilkamayu, the River of Stars (Milky Way) and its Sacred River of Water counterpart on Earth. The Wilkamayu (Above) and the Wilkamayu (Below) mirror each other in an unceasing flow of energies between Sky and Earth. Don Mariano will guide us in practices that invite sacred forces into our luminous body, connecting energies through each ñawi (the ñawis are similar to the chakras) and linking us to another ongoing source of energy.

Both workshops will be open to both experienced practitioners of Andean traditions and to newcomers - there are no prerequisites for your participation in the November, 2016 workshops with Don Mariano. 

The workshops will be offered at The Mountain, a retreat center near Highlands in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina. During the week between the two workshops, a very limited number of individual sessions with Don Mariano will be available in the Atlanta, Georgia area.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!

Let us know at if you would like to be part of this rare opportunity to apprentice with Don Mariano. We will be glad to send you more information and registration materials for the workshops.  

With Munay,
Anita and Sam
